University of East Anglia SCHOOL OF ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES SENIOR POST DOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE Numerical modelling of tropospheric halogen chemistry Ref: RA966 £30,424 to £36,298 per annum Applications are invited for a Senior Research Associate in the School of Environmental Sciences at UEA. The overriding aim of this project is to quantify the role of halogen chemistry for the composition of the troposphere. To this end existing reaction mechanisms (gas and aqueous phase) will be extended and tested against available data. In addition, simplified reaction schemes and parameterisations for the use in large scale (including global) 3D models will be developed. This work will be done in collaboration with partners who focus on the implementation of the simplified mechanisms and parameterisations into a global model. The successful applicant will have the following main tasks and responsibilities: (i) To use an existing state-of-the-art 1D model (MISTRA) to improve the condensed phase reaction mechanism and to develop a reduced chemical reaction mechanism for inclusion into large-scale atmospheric models. (ii) To develop parameterisations for the release of halogens from sea spray aerosol and for heterogeneous cycling of halogen compounds for inclusion into large scale models based on the detailed description in the above mentioned 1D model. (iii) To document the work; write scientific publications for international, peer reviewed journals and present the work at national/international conferences. The successful candidate will have a degree in atmospheric sciences or related field (ideally PhD or equivalent experience), knowledge in atmospheric and/or condensed phase chemistry and ideally numerical modelling. This is a full time post, with an intended start date of 15 August 2013 for a fixed term period of 21 months. Closing date: 12 noon on 12 July 2013. Full details can be found on: http://www.uea.ac.uk/hr/jobs/ra/ra966.htm Prospective applicants are encouraged to discuss the position informally with Prof Roland von Glasow (R.von-Glasow@uea.ac.uk).
